Happy Wedding Day

Because I always leave things for the last minute (my middle name is "procrastinator"), I had to start & finish a wedding card just hours before we had to leave for said wedding. It was a wedding at the zoo. Have you ever been to a wedding at the zoo? Very interesting...suited the couple. I saw alot of penguin butts.

Anyway, I needed a quick and easy card so I pulled out my brand new PTI Simple Sentiments set and got to work on a very CAS card. Since the bride's colors were darker tiffany's blue/tealish and brown I went for a sort of similar color scheme. I thought it looked a bit too plain so I die cut a few hearts from the TCP heart trio cut-up. I just love those hearts, so funky looking. It was definitely a five minute card, which was perfect b/c I still needed to wrap the gift...

The Dets:
Stamps: PTI Simple Sentiments
Paper: kraft & cream cs, MME stella rose
Ink: Brilliance pearlescent chocolate, spica glitter pen
Accessories: TCP heart trio die

Honey Bear

It's been a really long time since I've played in Jen del Muro's SFYTT. But as soon as I saw this month's sketch my mind immediately went to my new (to me) TCP Honey Bear set. Which I had just bought and hadn't yet used. Which is too say it was taking up space on my Looming List of Unused Stamps.

I colored Mr. PJ-bear up in copics and added a bit of glossy accents to the honey in his jar. But I had a really hard time getting it to show up in any pictures I took, so you'll just have to trust me on that. This card was supposed to be for my Honey's birthday, its just a few week's late...

The Dets:

Stamps: TCP Honey Bear
Paper: MB key lime notecard, MME lime twist fly a kite
Ink: Copics, Memento black
Accessories: PTI pure poppy ribbon, Michael's ribbon, MFT bitty dots die

TGF Mystery Monday

The All That Scraps store recently had an awesome sale, so it was the perfect excuse to pick up a few stamps I've had my eye on for a while. This Princess No. 3 Anya was one of the many purchases.

I just love her fun gown and her meatball head hair. Its soo adorable. And her crown just screams at me to whip out some of my spica glitter and stardream pens for some extra sparkle. I used TGF's Farm Fresh Challenge Mystery Monday (and isnt that a mouthful) to case the layout. And since I did buy it from the ATS store, it was almost kismet that this week's Wednesday Challenge was Anything Goes.

Stamps: TGF Princess Anya No. 3, Pure Innocence Fairy Girl
Paper: MB notecard, MME lime twist happy go lucky
Ink: Memento black, Copics, Spica glitter, Stardust
Accessories: MFT poppy and dizzy doily die, PTI hs button, Smooches clear
